Stop mentoring first-time contributors  ↦

According to Mike McQuaid, the focus of an open source maintainer should be learning to mentor efficiently — where should you be investing your time?

If you’re an open source maintainer lucky enough to have a significant number of contributors you need to learn to mentor efficiently. First timer issues are not the right good way to get people involved in your project nor mentoring individual first-time contributors. Instead, do things that help all of them.
